…The big variable when it comes to packing for the…shoot is what style of shoot it's going to be.…What I mean by that is, multiple cameras or just a single camera?…Today, we're using five different GoPros, partially because…we want to try them out in different shooting…situations, but also because we want a lot…of coverage, including some point of view shots.…This means that there's a lot of equipment.…Now, my strategy with equipment is to make sure I…bring what I need plus a few pieces of spare parts.…You don't want to be out of the water here because you can't…keep shooting because your case got broken, or you ran out of batteries.…
So really make sure you think it through.…I typically go as far as actually making a…packing list to make sure I have everything I need.…Now, it is possible to show up with too…much stuff, so if you're going to be flying to…location, or travel's going to be a bit difficult, try…to get things packed down into some smaller cases.…We have a lot of gear today, much more…than you're probably going to use on a real shoot.…
